We are in the middle of cold and flu season, and folks seem to be falling like flies. The common cold viruses can live on surfaces for up to two days, which means if you are sharing your house with someone who is sick, you best pay attention to the household handles you share with your sick friend or loved one.
To protect yourself, you should disinfect a few common home hot spots. Be sure to disinfect these areas regularly:
- Light switches
- Refrigerator handles
- Bathroom and kitchen faucets
- TV remotes
- Salt and pepper shakers
Remember, your best line of defense is to wash your hands regularly.
